So what import stores got the Hush batman re-issue besides HG? Not buying from bbts.
>>10739158Probably won't be till December, but I would expect to see it listed on Plaza Japan (especially since they stocked the Superman), etc.
>>10739338Plaza Japan came and went a few days ago, its already sold out there
>>10739124Since Cap, Jean and Daredevil are already up there really isn't anything left from the mafex prototypes I'm interested in.I'll probably grab the superboy when it goes up, but after that I can only hope for more prototype reveals.
Really hope this guy gets released on time, a holy grail for me. his hand looks a little awkward while holding the shotgun though.
>>10739374I just didnt bother to include the picture
>>10739348Damn that sold out quite fast then. I was late to the Superman but got one after Halloween through PJ.
Is it really possible to resell the figures at these crazy prizes that you find online?
>>10739124Sasha Grey and Alf
>>10739116Why does mafex never announce a proper reissue and just randomly drop like 3 stock per store?
>>10739620Probably found a container of factory rejects.
>>10739472Beautiful. The only mafex coming out that actually looks like he's worth the price.
>>10739562For most sensible people, no. But it's a game of chicken to see who cracks first: The buyer that thinks they'll never get the figure for less than the obscene scalper price, or the scalper who's hoarded cases of these in his room getting fucked over when the manufacturer/retailer puts up a reissue (always cheer for the latter).
>>10739620Most likely because they have to tailor their production schedule based on whatever they're releasing, and then ship it to their distributors. It wasn't that long ago that Mafex went from 2 figures being released a month, to now 4, sometimes more if reissues are added.Also doesn't help that they reissued two of the most in-demand figures in their catalog multiple times at this point, and they've all sold out within minutes.
>>10739116>BBTSFell for the scam
Guys, you think Superman and Batman from Dark Knight will get a reissue? I'd love to get the twogpack with Robin...
>>10740069I'd be surprised. A large portion of TDKR stuff was sitting. I remember buying TDKR Superman like 4 or 5 months after release on HobbySearch.Also technically speaking, Batman was reused with minimal changes like 3 times. Blue/Grey, Black/Grey and battle damage.
>>10739116Can hush batman get into a crouching pose? Thinking about getting him or preordering knightfall but I might skip if the articulation isn't crazy
>>10740129he can kneel, but no deep crouching
>>10740129Not that deep. That's AY stuff. He can probably do a 3-point or regular kneel.
>>10740132>>10740133Thanks anon, I'll probably just hold off until there's another batman fig that piques my interest
>>10739472Is he? He's still got the place holder date on hlj. Same with Ivy
>>10740226Medicom themselves said on their IG that it's coming out in November.
>>10740182There's the hope that AY might do a Batman 2.0 with a cloth cape.
>>10739562Can confirm. I had hush Batman and Superman last year, and I had multiple offers on Marketplace. A buyer was willing to offer 400 for the set. I bought it for retail, so I made pretty much just over double what I paid plus shipping. I’d say that’s the exception because high quality DC 6 inch figures are few and far in between. Marvel Mafex is probably a lot harder to sell at profit bc of overlap with Legends.
yes or no?
>>10740760I think she's great but she's not flawless. It's probably the only import figure that Huntress will ever get so it's pretty much that or the old DCD figures.
>>10740313Yeah that's what I'm hoping for, I like batman enough that I'd be willing to double dip and get both the AY and mafex honestly
>>10740238>>10740301This isn't prove of nothing desu.
>>10740968Correct. It's proof of something.Also, HLJ has Nov 21st as the release date.
>>10740760If you do the shorts mod, yeah.
>>10741024Find me a better 6" scale T2 Arnie for under $90.
>>10741024In what way?
>>10741045Necas are complete dogshit compared to mafex. If you arent trolling you are a smooth brained retard.
>>10741099At no point did I mention price. You claimed theres a hypothetical NECA somewhere out there that is a better value. Once again if you think the quality in the NECA and Mafex are comparable you need to not only stop posting on this board but commit suicide immediately.
>>10741024Ignore the troll. He's been doing this in the DBZ threads too.
>>10739374He's in stock on HLJ and Amiami, just paid for shipping for mine + SHF Indie
Are Mafexes durable enough to withstand some mild play every now and then? I grew up poor without many toys so now that I have some money I want to capture some of that childhood magic by playing with expensive figures like a little baby
>>10741739No, you'll break them for sure. SHF are usually sturdier.
>>10741027>6'' scaleThat's not a scale.
>>10741099It's been stated over and over again that if you're paying $90+ for a Mafex figure you're doing it fucking wrong. Standard releases are like $70-$75 after you add shipping, which can be mitigated by combining multiple orders. I just got Mafex Carwomam for like $60 shipped because I had a few items in the shipment.
>>10741743I think it's the other way around buddy
>>10741792Then you're wrong.
>>10741760Obviously he means 6 foot = 6 inch, I.e. 1:12
How does mafex decide what gets figures? Of all the action figure lines, it's hard for me to get a bead on what they're doing. It seems like they like 80s-90s comic book characters. They also do recent comic stuff like movies but then things like The Kingsman.
>>10741045>neca>MORE LIKE BREKKA KEKImagine being a lying retard, then doubling down on it.
>>10741777Not everyone lives in America. Mafex prices have also nearly doubled since a few years ago.
>>10742180You guys don't count
>>10741871Still, "6'' scale" is wrong and stupid as shit. It's literally like saying "16lbs tall".
>>10741025Whats the shorts mod?
>>10741190Neither of those are me retard You ever find a NECA better than this? Or were you all tuckered out from filling out your unemployment papers?
Superman 3.0 Mafex just might go down as the DEFINITIVE Superman figure. Only thing I don't like, is they removed the bottom cape wire, but it doesn't seem to affect posing too much.But man, the skin tone paint is significantly better. They also got rid of the defect where the left arm would just pop off for whatever reason.
>>10741899The only real lead you or any of us have is if they do a specific comic look or design from an era(say, late 80's/early 90's Spider-man) It's very likely they'll do more in that same series.
>>10739374Hobby Link Japan has T2 Arnold in stock now, I just bought one.
>>10742700Third production run of the Hush Superman. They're all pretty decently different too.
>>10742661>the DEFINITIVE Superman figure.until the next one that is.
>>10742770I wonder why he's not more popular, even T1 Arnie is on sale atm. Do zoomers only care about capeshit characters?
>>10742916T1 isn't as popular as T2 in pop culture, they announced the T2 version of Arnie not long after the T1 version (pretty sure T1 ver was still up for PO when they announced it too) so a lot of people just held off for that version.Same deal with the battle damaged one, most people want a clean T2 Arnie rather than a damaged look.
>>10743159Also, not all Mafex figures sell out instantly once they're in stock, sure it does happen but it's not a generate.Not to mention POs are open for months at a time, so stores likely have adequate stock.
>>10743159This. T2 was a pop culture phenomenon.
>>10742791That's not what 3.0 means. You're talking about a 1.03 version.
>>10742916The only Mafex that tend to sell out are the comic characters and I suspect it's because they get a lower production run. This is, technically, a movie based line and some other pop culture
So T2 is the only figure being released this month right?
>>10743492Maybe Darth Vader and Recur? Poison Ivy was pushed back to December by amiami so she likely isn't coming out this month.
>>10743492dis nigga came out earlier
>>10744770Don't use words you don't understand, retard.
Hush Riddler & Mandalorian Luke for this month.
>>10745116>>10745117>>10745119yes please. Feels really good to be building up my Batman Rogues>>10745122>>10745123>>10745125>>10745128Tunic is actually accurate to the show unlike Bandai and Hasbro, but the SHF likeness is still better. I'll stick with that one.
>>10745125This looks more like the stunt double guy than Hamil himself.
>>10745116Nice >>10745133>Feels really good to be building up my Batman RoguesSame, now if only we'd get a good Two-Face and Penguin (the DC Classics one is fine but dated).
>>10745163Yeah those two never appeared in Hush if I'm remembering correctly. Judging from that famous poster with all the villains we still need to get a shirtless Ra's, Talia, Killer Croc, and Clayface. I could see the Al Ghouls getting figures but I dunno if Medicom would do Clayface and Croc. Only villain I've skipped this far is Hush because lol who cares about him?
>>10745169Yeah that's an issue, maybe if Mafex did a Long Halloween line they could cover the remaining villains? That's the only other iconic storyline I can think of that included a bunch (though I'm probably forgetting something).>Clayface and CrocCroc looks pretty jank Hush so I don't mind them skipping over him, as for Clayface I'm using the McFarlane one for now and it works well.>Only villain I've skipped this far is Hush because lol who cares about him?Yeeeah, I mainly just got him to build out my villains, though the Jason head is neat.
>>10745122>>10745123>>10745125>>10745128Looks nice but at the same time it looks like a kid in a man's body. Wish it was the rotj version cause I give 0 fucks about the mandalorian.
>>10745116>>10745122meh. best spider when
>>10745122>>10745125Literally doesn't look like him at all.
>>10745351>best spider whenThey already did Ben Riley
>>10745351>>10745410They might as well all be the same as far as engineering goes. Mafex refuses to move past the comic spiderman body lol.
>>10745393So it's accurate to the CGI kek
>>10745116>>10745117>>10745119>>10745120Looks good, getting us closer to Robin
>>10745116>>10745117>>10745119>>10745120Looks good. Would've been cool if he had a no-hat head, with a hat accessory for some posing variety but he's still good.
>>10745500not really, it's ugly in a different way
>>10746106>uglyhe cute tho
>>10745091>He thinks 1.03 is that much different from 3.0>Literally means the same shit in terms of both numbers representing figures that were revised/rereleased with changes>Thinks that isn't pedantic
>>10746338why would you reply to me as if I give a shit about your opinion? Anyway.
>>10745351>Best Spider-Man>Plastic cape
>>10746403>He can't argue and is devolving into a retard screeching moron
>>10746382>TDK Batmanhttps://www.medicomtoy.co.jp/prod/dt/27/1/7104.html>TDK Batman 2.0https://www.medicomtoy.co.jp/prod/dt/27/1/9183.html>TDK Batman 3.0https://www.medicomtoy.co.jp/prod/dt/27/1/12348.htmlHush Superman is a reissue with slight quality differences. Unlike the TDK Batman which have some new parts or completely new.Even the Spider-Man reissue with shiny blue wasn't released as a 2.0 because they were just correcting to the color the prototype originally had.
>>10746453>doesn't understand the difference between "character" and "figure"esl faggot detected
What's the consensus? His shoulders look a tad bit too low, but could just be me coping for buying the Figuarts
Can Mafex Superman hold Mafex Thor's hammer? Perhaps with a handswap if that's even possible?
>>10746665I'll wait for in-hand pics or a discount.
>>10746665I think they may just be posed poorly.
>>10746665looks too disjoined for my taste, also the hair looks really weird
>>10746791your mom is a dollar store figure
>>10746801you went from "it looks like it should cost a dollar" to "WOW SO YOU CAN'T MAKE LIGHT CRITICISM?!" lmao
>>10746477is the number writen on the package?
>>10746727That may be it. If the shoulders function like the T-800's, they should be able to push up and appear flush.
Amiami just put "Renewal" versions of Robocop 1 and 2 up for PO, they're 10,630 this time though.
>>10747082The fuck is Medicom smoking with these price hikes? It's not even a new mold you greedy sons of bitches.
>>10746665I own the Figuarts. This one has a better face. Figuarts has no light behind his eyes.
>>10747124>Better faceYeah if you want Justin Bieber cosplaying Luke for 10k yen.
>>10747082Does Mafex just drop all these reissues without any announcement? This shit already sold out.
Is mafex retarded?
>>10746665Can't decide whether his lightsaber looks like a ice lolly or glow-in-the-dark dildo.
>>10747393Yes, but it doesn't have anything to do with HLJ.They drop tiny quantity re-issues to select stores that don't even include the big ones like amiami and HLJ.
>>10747402Looks more like a lightsaber blade than other companies that make theirs completely transparent.
>>10747438Not really, your pic has far more white-green, whereas the mafex is just opaque-green.
>>10746670yeah, using thor's hand. the skin tone doesn't match though. superman is more tan.
>>10747082Interesting they have new numbers. Wonder if Robocop two will be more bluer like the unmasked version.
>>10747415Amiami does get restocks though, or at least they got Catwoman, Joker, Superman and Robocop
>>10747415>>10747608but it says "discontinued" not "out of stock"
>>10747623HLJ =/= Medicom.Setting aside that HLJ hasn't been getting the reissues (I've messaged them about it and the person replies with "maybe in the future), that's just what HLJ does for old figure listing after a certain time, it doesn't mean Medicom has told them "hey we're never rereleasing this ever again" directly.
>>10742916Most Mafex don’t seem to sell out immediately. Medicom must be able to produce a good amount of them for a couple months unlike Bandai/Figuarts.
Batman is up on HShttps://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10686470
>>10747454Thanks bruv. Looks good enough for me honestly
>>10740129he can, but he won't be getting up ever again.
For that anon who asked about it a thread or so back, battle-damaged Terminator is on sale at HLJ, only about 2000 yen off though but its something.The damaged Robocop is also on sale which I picked up now that I have the original coming.
>>10748288Missed it. Any chance of amiami or hlj getting some stock?
>>10748288thx!>>10749201for me it is still/again available
>>10749201>>10749237It goes in and out on HS, but they seem to get more stock than anyone else. It stays up for a couple hours at a time there.
>>10749237Missed again :'(Medicom should really set a longer production date and make them to order.
Both Robocop reissues are up at HLJ
>>10747415Which "select stores" get reissues the most? They obviously don't care enough about the major ones (hlj, hs, ami) to send them more like 3 of each.
T2 Arnie is great boys. Plenty of quality accessories, rock solid joints, perfect paint, this is probably the best Mafex I own.
>>10749993It's definitely the best Mafex release in a while. Unfortunately it will be outsold by all the capeshit characters and probably warm shelves for the next 6 months.
>>10750465>Unfortunately it will be outsold by all the capeshit characters and probably warm shelves for the next 6 months.It will be outsold because no one cares about buying merch for 80s/90s movies as much as you think they do. Meanwhile capeshit has way more of a reach. Kids grow up watching capeshit, and then end up buying capeshit as adults.
>>10750465Luckily Medicom isn't as autistic as Bandai so they won't kill the name super hero figures just because one doesn't sell out instantly
>>10751196>name super hero*none super hero
are there any good places to buy discontinued mafex or is ebay the only option? really want venom
>>10751513I'll look into that, thanks
>>10751505How much is he going for nowadays? I have the reissue just sitting in my closet unopened
>>10751525haven't seen anything below 200 for new
>>10750746>no one cares about buying merch for 80s/90s movies I'd say a good 90% of collectors are 80s/90s boomers trying to relive their childhood nostalgia. Capeshit is just a temporary fad that will pass.>Kids grow up watching capeshit, and then end up buying capeshitKids don't buy toys, period.
>>10752861>Capeshit is just a temporary fad that will pass.85+ years sure is a long time for a fad to be going on.You do know comics were also big in the 80/90s, right? The same "boomers" who want movie characters from that era likely also want comicbook characters from that era.
>>10752861Why are you Americans so retarded?
>>10752877I meant in the context of the current cultural zeitgeist capeshit is getting a lot of media attention now. But back in the 90s capeshit was about as popular (or less so) as terminator, jurassic park, indiana jones, etc.Once movie studios shift their attention to something else, general interest in capeshit will die as well except for the small hardcore niche fanbase.
>>10752861>Capeshit is just a temporary fad that will pass.Ah yes, a temporary fad that birthed an entire industry for 90+ years, including merchandise, action figures, etc.>Kids don't buy toys, period.Now you're retarded. You think Walmarts, Targets, TRU, etc. just put adult toys for sale? Everything on the toy aisles is for adults? Headass.
>>10752886No one is saying movies don't change based on consumer trends, but you're being selective and retarded by focusing just on movies and ignoring comic books (inb4 you try to argue about wokeness and ignore the point that the industry is still alive and well and transitioning into the digital age), animated content, etc. Hell even video games have their fair share of capeshit.TL;DR - you're retarded for thinking capeshit is a "fad"
>>10753479I don't even remember the last time I've seen a kid walk out of target with an action figure in their hands. Most are perpetually glued to their stupid phones. So whoever's buying them it certainly isn't kids.
>>10755106I's parents buying them for kids, gramps.
>>10751530>>10751505I remember missing out on this fig loose at Frank and Sons for 50 bucks. It wasn't a bootleg.
>>10755884Sure thing, anon
>>10753479>>10753484The Capeshit-era of movies is on it's last dying breath. The comic-book era is already dead and buried. "Alive and well" my ass. The only "comics" still booming are strictly Japanese manga. A markey will always exist for nonstalgia fags, but as a whole, capeshit is already in recession and it's only going to get worse.
>>10751505He's too short and doesn't really scale well with anything. I always find myself falling back to the Yamaguchi Venom because he just has better shelf presence.
>>10740760>>10742332if you fix it then yeah.
>>10756524why the fuck would I lie about missing out on a good deal? lol Retard
>>10757172I swear every time I see this figure it looks like they sculpted perky nipples.
>>10757172I can't believe nobody's selling this as an upgrade kit.
>>10757172If only she had ass tech half as good as Nightwing's.
does anyone have pics of a full batman hush collection so far? are people really going for this line?
>>10757385they did sculpt it to make it look like she has perky nips under that spandex, it's on Catwoman too, even Psylocke and Storm have it. Someone at Perfect-Studio likes perky nipples
>>10757172fuuuuck i need to do this, this looks so good
>>10758617Based taste but would it kill them to give their females more pronounced ass-ets?
>>10758560It's basically your only choice for articulated comic Batman figures in a modern articulation style, until Knightfall figures start coming but there's no guarantee they go as all-in with that
>https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-057462Batman is up. Get in quick you want one.
>>10758730im tempted to buy a third haha...
>>10758695I dont see an issueharley's could have been better though
>>10758740I'm happy with two - one spare in case of QC issues. Not gonna be that filthy scalper.
>>10758764I also collect other lines and am not made of money ha
>>10758730I bought a third so I can use the unmasked head from the blue version. I'm still surprised they reissued Jean Grey instead of a character that people actually want.
>>10758730Godsamn it I guess I'm getting him. Managed to combine him with my Ivy order to at least make shipping less. Can't turn down a Mafex figure that cheap. Especially when I only have the Blue version which I still prefer, but I like having options.
Medicom seem to be making good progress. In 4 months we've had 9 of the releases shown back in the summer given a PO.Next release is November 2024 I'm guessing. We still have enough prototypes to fill 2025 though and sadly nothing i'm interested in.MAFEX Hulk in 2026??
>>10758730Damn it! I was at work and I missed it, shit. Pray to god more go up for preorder
>>10758764>Not gonna be that filthy scalper.Oh me neither, I just like having multiples.
>>10758998>MAFEX Hulk>it's Endgame Hulk
>>10760313>MAFEX Hulk>it's She Hulkmuh dick
>>10758853>Can't turn down a Mafex figure that cheap.This was literally standard Mafex pricing up to about a year ago. It's just their excessively greedy price hikes this year have made everything before seem cheap by comparison.
>>10760570hopefully comic She Hulk
I just ordered a Eggsy off Plaza Japan. Am I shit of luck if I also want to get Bruce Wayne Sigma Christian Bale version?
>>10760678Most Mafex figures used to cost like $65ish. It's just with the yen exchange so in favor of the dollar right now, it brings the thing to $50 before shipping.
>>10757172Do you know who they stole the upper thighs from? As i dont believe they are painted/sculpted from the base thigh
>>10758998>Spider-Man 2099 my beloved
>>10762740>As i dont believe they are painted/sculpted from the base thighThey are.
>>10763185Interesting. Do you have a link to the customizer? Im curious on their process as the base thigh has a lot of molded in shorts detail.
>>10763668He's a poster here, he's in the thread sometimes so he may see this. I remember when he first posted it he gave a breakdown. Would like to see it myself, since I plan on doing the same.
>>10760570>>10760803Literally my most wanted Mafex. Byrne or Slott era would be preferred but I'll settle for MCU. I just want there to be one good figure of this character.
